Top 5 Data Science Trends for 2020 - KDnuggets

#artificialintelligence

Technology is evolving continuously, and so are we. In the upcoming years, there will be massive growth in the AI and Machine Learning field. There is already a considerable amount of data to be managed, and with new technological advancements, we can utilize big data in many ways. For that, we have to stay up to date with the latest trends in data science. Data Science is not a single term; it covers a variety of topics and networks, such as the Internet of Things, Deep Learning, AI, etc.


Scientists create internet connected biodegradable PAPER, which collects data without e-waste

Daily Mail - Science & tech

Researchers in Japan have created a new kind of biodegradable, internet-connected piece of paper that's just one millimeter thick. Called nanopaper, the team believes it could change the way a wide variety of data is collected in nature. The project was developed at Osaka University's Institute of Scientific and Industrial Research (ISIR) by a team of scientists led by doctoral researcher Takaaki Kasuga. The nanopaper is just one-1,000th the thickness of pulp paper and it has a smooth surface that's similar to plastic in texture, according to a report in The Asahi Shimbun. In spite of its feel, the nanopaper is designed to be biodegradable and have a minimal impact on the environment and not require any expensive maintenance.



The Ethical Considerations, Trust, and Responsibility in Designing Voice UI - UX Mastery

#artificialintelligence

We were very excited to chat recently with Trip O'Dell who, among his other impressive roles, has been a product design lead at Amazon where he worked on the future vision for their virtual assistant, Alexa. Our discussion with Trip was full of juicy insights about Voice UI and the ethical considerations behind Alexa's design, and how we as designers need to be leaders in making those ethical choices. Below is an article we wrote and edited in collaboration with Trip using speech-to-text tools and a linear audio editor. All the words are his, we just helped put them on your screen. When it comes to Voice UI there's a lot of conversation around voices, but very little around personality--whether or not we want to describe it as a personality--that we're creating. How trustworthy should that personality be?


The Amazing Ways Goodyear Uses Artificial Intelligence And IoT For Digital Transformation

#artificialintelligence

Would you be surprised to learn a 120-year-old company is transforming its business with artificial intelligence and technology? Akron, Ohio-based tire maker Goodyear might not be the first company you think of when discussing technological innovation, but they continue to announce intriguing developments and offer proof via new initiatives and products that they are altering operations to be competitive in the future. Regardless if it's an autonomous, electric, or a traditional vehicle, they all need a solid foundation of the right tire for the specific demands of the vehicle. Goodyear uses internet of things technology in its Eagle 360 Urban tire. The tire is 3D printed with super-elastic polymer and embedded with sensors.


How Deepfake Technology Actually Works

#artificialintelligence

As coverage of deepfake technology becomes more prevalent, it's reasonable to wonder how these videos even work. Advancements in motion capturing and facial recognition over the past decade have been staggering – and terrifying. What used to be limited to only the most well-funded computer scientists and movie studios is now a tool in the hands of comedy outlets and state-run media. By definition, deepfakes are videos in which a person's face and/or voice are replaced with someone else's by an AI. The underlying technology and machine learning processes rose to popularity in the early '90s, evolving from a field of academic research.

Is Text Analysis key to Renaissance's Success? - Alternative Data Sources

Jim Simons is the greatest moneymaker in modern financial history, and no other investor – Warren Buffett, Peter Lynch, Ray Dalio, Steve Cohen, or George Soros – can touch his record. His firm has earned profits of more than $100 billion, and between 1994 and 2004, its signature fund, The Medallion Fund, averaged 70 per cent annual return. Medallion's returns don't seem to correlate with known factors and the only thing most people get to know is that the strategy is "statistical arbitrage". People are confounded by the fact that the proliferation of other quantitative hedge funds in recent years hasn't caused Medallion's performance to deteriorate. Last year, there was a very readable book about Jim Simons: On the man who solved the markets – How Jim Simons Launched the Quant Revolution, Penguin 2019.


The 84 biggest flops, fails, and dead dreams of the decade in tech

#artificialintelligence

The world never changes quite the way you expect. But at The Verge, we've had a front-row seat while technology has permeated every aspect of our lives over the past decade. Some of the resulting moments -- and gadgets -- arguably defined the decade and the world we live in now. But others we ate up with popcorn in hand, marveling at just how incredibly hard they flopped. This is the decade we learned that crowdfunded gadgets can be utter disasters, even if they don't outright steal your hard-earned cash. It's the decade of wearables, tablets, drones and burning batteries, and of ridiculous valuations for companies that were really good at hiding how little they actually had to offer. Here are 84 things that died hard, often hilariously, to bring us where we are today. Everyone was confused by Google's Nexus Q when it debuted in 2012, including The Verge -- which is probably why the bowling ball of a media streamer crashed and burned before it even came to market.
